“Driven by Curiosity”

This is the week of a debate organised by the London Evening Standard on “Art or Science: which matters more?”. The major speakers were Rohan Silver, the government technology advisor, and the former BP chief Lord Browne. Wise words were expected from these leaders, the children of CP Snow’s generation, all brought up on one or other of the two cultures.

But the show was stolen by wise words from a woman of a younger society, the “actress and philanthropic entrepreneur” Lily Cole.


“I have always been drawn between the two disciplines. To me, there isn’t a divide, and most times when you encounter art, it’s enabled by science, whether it’s an iPhone or the chemistry of pigment or Leonardo Da Vinci’s helicopter.

“The scientists and artists I know are all driven by curiosity. When the two combine they can really empower one another.”
